Office 2010 will be available soon – but not now.

With the news that Office 2010 has been released to manufacture, the software pirates were quickly out with downloads that you should not touch.

Office-Watch.com checked a few of the ‘Office 2010 RTM’ downloads and found most of them were just renamed beta versions of Office 2010. At best you get the ‘pre-RTM’ version.

Even if a download is the real deal there’s always the risk of the download being infected with some virus or worm. You didn’t think people made the download available out of the goodness of their hearts?

Be patient, Office 2010 will be available soon enough. The current beta version will work until October 2010. It’s a good bet that Microsoft will have a free trial download of Office 2010.
